As we go back to the present, we see K.A. finally updating her outmoded equipment-- in particularly radical fashion. You may recall that the increased nanomachine activity in her body was the cause of her awakening. Now, with Mela's help, she's not only built a new XAG, but is optimizing her very body to use it. Is it wise for her to do this? Does K.A. still hold any value for her own life? And are the wetwork jobs Mela's done to keep those cats fed and sheltered the same "odd jobs" she's done for Bryce?!

These kids really are selfless! Why are they so helpful and dedicated? Sorry, I only have villainous mentality! XD

Wait and see how long they'll stay that way. Mela, at least, isn't above bounty hunting to pay the bills.

Yeah- "Wetworks jobs" segueing into "Speaking of bloody messes" doesn't inspire confidence.

I always get a kick out of pulling out terminology and concepts from your comic and trying to deduce how thy relate to what's going on in each update. I wasn't familiar with "benthic zones" until I read this and had to go google it (I'm too curious not to). And now I'm wracking my brains as to what the relation is. I'm guessing it's a call back to the organisms that live and have had to adapt to the intense water pressure at the bottom of the sea floor and that this is what K.A, although artificially, is aiming to do right now.

I'm obviously also concerned as to how this'll affect K.A.especially since we're talking about what sounds like a severe artificial process. Not to mention her self-view. I've recently myself had to ponder the idea of originality versus change (still am) and the idea of actually part by part replacing oneself is highly resonating:

Thank you. You are exactly the kind of reader any comic creator worth their salt would want, probably because you are an accomplished cartoonist in your own right as well. I don't know if the amount of stuff I put into my comics makes them harder to get into (apparently having characters who talk about science and philosophy and politics can't just be papered over with flashy armor), but comments like this makes it all worthwhile.

Well, i can't speak for the majority. But once I got into Wyrecats, the complexity of it is what's kept me here. It's really something else and it inspires me as a creator too.

You just keep up the great work! I definetly want to see where all this is headed!

I...is that a giant needle gun she's holding in that last panel!
Argh! Criiiiinge

The manufacturer calls it an "auto-injector" instead for a reason

Dang... This whole page has me wincing a little. This is a Good Thing.

Jeez. They enjoy being robots? I think these guys need therapy. They seem to bitch about not being human, but they did it to themselves. To be heroes? Or to fix their "broken" selves? To escape reality.

If I had their reality, I'd want to do a little escaping too. Though in their case, it's more like "trying to fix what doesn't work the best."
And they're not robots. They wear robotic suits.
Did the nanites replace her cells? Or replicate them?
Keep in mind that the number of bacteria living in a healthy human is far more than the number of cells that make up that human. Hosting single celled organisms to keep you alive is a natural and good thing.
